Invest in your body, you don't get another one!
Deep tissue therapeutic sports massage is an effective method for you to take charge of your own health and wellbeing. Massage can prevent injuries normally gained through lack of mobility or flexibility.
A therapeutic sports massage should play an important role for every body. It is important to keep your muscles maintained, hydrated, toned and stretched.
Do you suffer from a long-term sports injury?
Do you have a burning sensation between your shoulder blades?
Are you training for a sports event?

A treatment at A Little R & R is an in-depth look at the body as a whole. Each new client will receive a postural analysis and body alignment analysis before any hands-on work begins.
Your therapist will discuss your particular pain in-depth and view how your muscular restrictions are affecting your movement to assess if there is a deeper reason for chronic body or joint pain e.g. muscular imbalance due to previous injury or weakness in a certain muscle group.
They will then discuss your individual treatment plan and work with you over 3 to 6 treatments to dissolve your pain so you can be back to the person you wish to be.
